Akie drilling aims below Cardiac Creek

Canada Zinc Metals Corp. June 12 reported that crews have been mobilized to the Akie zinc-lead-silver property in northeastern British Columbia in preparation of a planned 5,000-meter drill program primarily targeting the lower elevations of the indicated and inferred sections of the mineral resource at Cardiac Creek.

The company said the central core represents the highest grade and thickest area of the deposit and the down-dip extent of this core will be the primary target area for the 2015 drilling.

Other work planned for the 2015 season includes field assessment of high-priority geophysical targets identified through ongoing airborne gravity data interpretation; and focused soil geochemistry in select areas.

Environmental studies, including surface and groundwater sampling, also are ongoing.
